The first week of the Analogue Hobbies Annual Winter Painting Challenge is over and so is the first of the seven Bonus Rounds. The first of these was Non-Combatants and for my entry I sent in this great 28mm model of Wayland the Smith. The figure was given away free by Wayland Games to anyone that made a purchase from their stand at Salute 2012. Although it never got painted at the time I knew it was just too nice a model to sit neglected in my Lead Mountain for long. The Challenge gave me the spur I needed to dig this model out and give it the colour it so richly deserved.
If this is indeed Father Christmas making a toy sword for some lucky child it must represent him at the start of his career, before the endless mince pies affected his waistline!
Well thats all from me this side of the festivities so all that remains for me to do is to thank all my readers for following my sometimes haphazard posts here on BLMA and to wish you all a very happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
